I have a Terasic DE0-Nano Cyclone IV with built-in USB Blaster.
I am using:
OS: Windows 10 Pro
I have tried to USB Blaster driver from Quartus II 9.1, 13.0, 13.1, 18.0, and 18.1.
I have tried disabling driver signing, but, this is probably useless since I never got an error message about an unsigned driver.
The Altera USB Blaster driver installs without issue, but, I get caution sign by the device in device manager and the error below. Needless to say the device is not recognized by any version of Quartus II mentioned above or the Terasic Control Panel.
I have scrounged the forums, but, I am not finding a solution. Does anyone know how to fix the driver or if there is an alternate driver? This is my first FPGA, I would love to work through some tutorials, but, can't get past the driver issue.
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
%hs is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support. Error status 0x
The problem I described in the original post is after updating the driver as described in the link below. Sorry I wasn't more clear about that.
Thank you for this additional troubleshooting information. Neither of these links fix the problem I am experiencing. That said, I was able to connect the DE0-Nano Cyclone IV on another computer (Mac Mini ~2013) with the same Windows version and build. The instructions you provided work flawlessly on the Mac Mini. The computer that does not work is a Microsoft Surface Book 2. I recently noted that an older USB 2.0 hub I have also does not work on the Surface Book. I think the problem I am experiencing is due to some USB compatibility problem with the Surface Book 2. Regardless, I have a working solution for the DE0-Nano so I am good to go.
Thanks again for you assistance.
I'm having the same issue on the same windows build except I'm using a Dell OptiPlex desktop PC. On another Dell PC with Windows 10 the usb-blaster installed correctly. I also get the same issue on a Dell laptop.
